Penfolds Block 42 Kalimna Cabernet Sauvignon 1996
Exceptional vintage conditions in the Barossa Valley in 1996 presented Penfolds winemakers with the opportunity to make this one-off, special bin wine in the tradition of the legendary Bin 60A, Bin 7 and Bin 90A.
Dense plum red. Penfolds Block 42 Kalimna Cabernet Sauvignon 1996 has compelling savoury and spicy notes - ginger, nutmeg and cardamom - interwoven with carob/dark chocolate flavours against a background of lightly charred, cedary oak. On the palate, concentrated fruits - blackcurrant and dark plum - merge into the chocolate and liquorice spectrum with hints of black olive and mineral elements to give a rounded finish.
